Cal State Fullerton Dream Center Grand Opening April 23

April 14, 2014

On Wednesday, April 23, a new center will open its doors at Cal State Fullerton. The Titan Dreamers Resource Center is designed to provide undocumented students with academic and emotional support, referrals to financial assistance, programs and services designed to improve retention and graduation rates, and a comforting environment where students can connect with one another.

In fact, Cal State Fullerton will be the first university in the CSU system to open such a center (although others are in the planning stages).

Located on the second floor of the campus's Pollak Library, the grand opening will celebrate the launch of the center. Festivities will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Remarks will be given by CSUF President Mildred A. García; José L. Cruz, provost and vice president for academic affairs; and Berenecea Johnson Eanes, vice president for student affairs. A ceremonial ribbon cutting will take place, and guests will be invited to enjoy refreshments. The public is invited.

"Up until now, there has been an organic, dedicated and passionate group of staff and faculty who have shepherded these students to the programs and services they need," said Eanes. "The opening of the Dream Center serves as a clear indicator of Cal State Fullerton’s commitment to the support and success of undocumented students.”
